This is my most favorite song from this choir. The very first thing I do after my devotions and before beginning my job every morning, is to listen to this song and just be in the presence of my Savior with Praise and worship. God bless each one and the superb Conductor...
This always brings to mind Revelations 5: 9-14
Beautiful! So Beautiful! But my praise and compliment mean nothing. Instead, listen to what the lord say to you: Mat 25:23, "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
I totally do not understand how anyone can give a thumbs down to this. The St. Olaf Choir does this arrangement as well as I have ever heard it done. A sound this good can lift a person out of their time and space and literally catch them away for the duration. Stellar job, St Olaf Choir and Anton Armstrong!
My mom is a chef and prepared the meal for St. Olaf choir before one of their performances in Charlotte. You guys.... they SANG their grace!!!! it was stunningly awesome to hear! And then they called my mom out after they ate and sang their thank you to her in such harmony and unity, I could hear them sing forever. I feel incredibly blessed to have been a part of hearing that
No shit; I had no idea this was ever heard outside of the shape-note crowd in the US (well, FROM the US). THe Southern Harmony was an old shape-note hymnal (look it up shape note singing, it's pretty cool: search "Sacred Harp Wonderous Love 159"). It's a very old tune though, goes back hundreds of years (the words are newer). The same tune is used in old ballads like "Captain Kidd", and others I can't recall right now. Never realized it was still in modern hymnals and is still being sung by choirs! Not sure it qualifies as a "Christmas song" though (referring to it being in a playlist of Christmas music).
So Beautiful - One of my favorite Sacred Harp - Shape note tunes and such a beautiful A' Capella Chamber choir version. Congrats on spinning off those overtones on the final chords. To me that's the ultimate synergy when all the parts come together and produce something in addition to the actual parts being sung. Those are the goosebumps.. ;-) Man I miss singing small ensemble.
